02. The Noctilien night bus network

Noctilien is a night bus service provided by the Île-de-France region and Île-de-France Mobilités, in conjunction with RATP and Transilien SNCF.

In Paris, the Noctilien night bus network branches out from five major transfer hubs: Châtelet, Montparnasse, Gare de l’Est, Gare Saint-Lazare, and Gare de Lyon. All RER stations are served by the Noctilien network. (ne pas traduire : mettre visuel carte noctilien)

03. Fares

You may travel on the Noctilien night bus network using a Navigo monthly, weekly or annual travel pass, Imagine R student travel pass, Mobilis and Paris Visite travel passes.

You may also travel on a Noctilien night bus using t+ tickets or tickets purchased onboard from the driver. The number of t+ tickets necessary is calculated as follows:
  • One ticket for travel between the first two zones, and then one ticket for each zone crossed thereafter. Example: zones 1-2 = 1 ticket; zones 1-3 = 2 tickets.
  • Each time you change buses, you must validate a new ticket. The t+ ticket is not valid for transfers between Noctilien night buses.
For any transfers between Noctilien night buses, a new ticket must be validated.
